Ryan Murphy, the creator, writer, and executive producer of "Nip/Tuck" proved he was a total genius with this series. His writing was always entertaining, yet educational and some of the cases depicted were actually based on real-life people. It is no wonder that Ryan would go on to helping create another hit show with FOX's "Glee".
"Nip/Tuck" also had a supporting cast that was as good as the leads and included Kelly Carlson, John Hensley, and Joley Richardson. Some huge Hollywood names were added to the cast as the years progressed in guest-roles including Vanessa Redgrave, Rosie O'Donnell, Mario Lopez, Joan Rivers, and most importantly Sharon Gless who played a psycho, based on Annie Wiles, in the fifth season.
This wonderful box set includes all 100 widescreen episodes of the series, along with all the bonus features that were part of the individual sets. These bonuses are gag reels, deleted scenes, and featurettes. Unfortuantely, no new bonuses are included in this "complete set", but if you haven't bought any "Nip/Tuck" DVD's this is a great place to start: the pricing is very affordable.
Unfortunately, it all went downhill starting Season 3. I dont know if they changed writers or just got blinded by their success and didnt try as hard, but Nip/Tuck made a downhill run starting in Season 3 until the abysmal failure which was the last season: increasingly improbable, far fetched situations that take the notion of suspending disbelief to new heights, bad to no character development (at least not one that is believable), unimaginative writing that is all over the place, everyone acting supremely out of character...I could go on with more examples. There just wasn't much depth in the characters later on and in fact at some point they became a parody of themselves it seems. The writers took the "sudden twists" in plot development that were gripping and enticing in the first two seasons and sprinkled them excessively in every episode to the point where it became almost ridiculous. While in the beginning they used those sparingly to get the desired effect, it was just overdone in later seasons - ultimately causing the show to lose exactly what it tried to accomplish.Read more ›
